At today's DocBook TC meeting, we discussed the possibility of applying to be a mentoring organization for
this year's Google Summer of Code.
As many of you know, the DocBook project (as distinct from the DocBook TC, though many people participate in
both activities) applied to the program several times and was accepted twice. The program has brought us
some useful software and, even more important, new contributors to the DocBook community.
To participate this year, we need two things:
1) Mentors: we need at least 5 or 6 people who are willing to participate as mentors.
2) Ideas: we need ideas for projects that students can work on.
I'm willing to be the organization administrator again this year, but I'm glad to hand over responsibility
if someone else wants the job this year.
For the full schedule and more information about the program, go to:
February 20 is the deadline for applications. To participate, we need to have mentors lined up by February
9, which is the opening date for filing applications.
If you're interested in participating, you can reply to this message on the list or send me email directly at
the address below.
P.S. Sorry for the cross posting, but I wanted to make sure this gets out to the widest audience.
